Rin Matsuoka’s childhood friend, Sousuke Yamazaki, has recently transferred to Samezuka Academy. Upon their reunion, the two reminisce about their childhood days and reaffirm their wish to swim together. Now with Rin, Sousuke, Captain Mikoshiba’s younger brother Momotarou Mikoshiba, and hard-working Aiichirou Nitori, the Samezuka relay team is formed, and their friendship deepens. However, as tournaments, races, and training go on, the reason for Sousuke’s sudden return begins to trouble him and affect his swimming. Noticing Sousuke’s change, Rin pushes to uncover what is holding him back.

All you need to know about this movie is that it's all focused on Rin and the Samezuka swim team. It's a retelling of Eternal Summer at face value, however, the extra scenes and emphasis on Rin and his swim team really made for this movie to be so good. If you're a Rin fan (like myself) you will absolutely enjoy this movie.

The beginning actually brought me to tears because there are extra scenes of Rin's childhood when his father was alive and he was a happy little kid who admired his father. But then you also see that same child lose his father ...

Wow, that was good. -Kizuna- was okay but in comparison -Yakusoku- was more fulfilling. This second movie also adapts season 2 of the anime, but from Rin's perspective and with some added scenes. The movie gave us insights into Sosuke, Rin and the other kids from Samezuka. Basically you'll switch from cheering for the Iwatobi boys to screaming for Samezuka bishies to win. So much hype.

Okay, first things first, you're getting new Style Five music in this movie and the art and story are good as always. Second, don't watch this as a replacement to the anime series because it isn't.

However, unlike the first movie, I do actually recommend that you skim through this movie. Let me explain: the first movie and this movie are both compilations of Free!: Eternal Summer. Each movie shows different scenes to tell the same story, but you can get most of those scenes by watching the anime, so it's kind of useless to watch the movies. Except for the fact that you're gonna ...
